    Hash: SHA1
    ScramDisk, a file system encryption program for Windows 95 & 98
    implements a form of steganography;  a Fat16 disk can be created in
    the low bits of a WAV file and only someone with the passphrase can
    mount the volume.
    ScramDisk implements DES, IDEA, Blowfish, 3DES, TEA, Square and MISTY1
    and uses SHA-1 to hash passphrases.  It comes with full source code
    and is totally FREE.
    I would recommend waiting until Monday 24/8/98 until downloading the
    program - v2.02 is due to be released and contains loads of new
    features and bug fixes.
    I would like to see UK Customs and Excise prove that a slightly hissy
    WAV file is really porn :-)
    Sorry for the shameless plug,
